European Commission - Statement

Statement by President Juncker on the imminent release of two Greek soldiers detained in Turkey

Brussels, 14 August 2018

Delighted by the news of the imminent release of the two Greek soldiers detained in Turkey.

As I said in Varna, Turkey has nothing to fear from its European neighbours.

The EU will remain engaged in this strategic partnership.

We want to see a democratic, stable and prosperous Turkey.
